Princess Leia in Bespin Outfit Unpainted Hardcopy Torso
It can be hard to find Return of the Jedi era hardcopy figures or even parts, but to find something from the original Empire Strikes Back era is a rare find indeed. Shown here is an unpainted hardcopy torso for the Princess Leia in Bespin outfit figure. This piece was cast in carbalon, a light tan colored urethane commonly used on pre-ROTJ hardcopies. You can see that there are a few spots on the chest were the mold didn't fill perfectly. This may be one the of the reasons why this piece wasn't used to complete a figure. Although this piece has holes drilled for the limbs and even has a metal pin for the legs it was likely not used.

Here is a shot of the back of the torso. When finished these pieces would be used to make a complete painted hardcopy like the one shown here.
